The global electric vehicle (EV) battery housing market size was valued at USD 11.79 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 15.15 billion in 2024 to USD 32.25 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period.

The Electric Vehicle (EV) battery housing is a type of box specifically designed for the batteries, such as the lithium-ion battery of an electric vehicle. It is also called a battery case and battery enclosure. The Electric Vehicle battery housing comprises a metal enclosure (top cover & bottom cover) or box that protects the battery cell from damage and moisture, dust, and debris. The housing also delivers structural support to the battery pack and also for additional systems, such as thermal management systems, cooling systems, or battery management systems. The growing adoption of advanced EV battery pack (housing) technologies for enhanced performance is anticipated to propel the Electric Vehicle battery housing market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic positively affected the global electric vehicle (EV) battery housing market. The pandemic disrupted the supply chain, leading to the shortage of critical components and materials used in EV battery production. For instance, lithium-ion batteries are a core component of electric vehicles and disruptions in the supply of lithium, cobalt, and other essential materials hindered battery production, and consequently electric vehicle (EV) battery housing production.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery Housing Market Trends

Rising Adoption of Lightweight Materials and Modular Design is an Ongoing Trend

The rising adoption of lightweight materials and modular design is an ongoing trend in the market. The trend is driven by the need to enhance design, safety systems, and overall vehicle efficiency. Manufacturers or OEMs are increasingly focused on lightweight materials for Electric Vehicle battery housing to enhance vehicle efficiency and range. Materials, such as aluminum and high-strength composites are gaining popularity due to their properties.

The rising market growth is attributed to the rising demand for lightweight materials, modular design, and improved safety features in electric vehicles. Modular Electric Vehicle battery housing designs are on the rise, allowing for easier scalability and customization. This trend is driven by the need to accommodate different battery sizes and configurations for various EV models.

  • For instance, in 2022, SGL Carbon introduced carbon fiber and fiber composite materials for automotive production and industrial applications. The company presented carbon fiber housing for lightweight/weightless construction, impregnated materials based on glass and carbon fiber, and composite battery cases for electric vehicles. The company provided a high-voltage battery housing concept, representing a weight decrease of up to 50 % compared with the corresponding steel component.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery Housing Market Growth Factors

Increasing EV Adoption and Battery Technology Advancement to Propel Market Growth

The adoption of electric vehicles increases yearly due to environmental concerns and government incentives. The growing environmental awareness is one of the primary drivers for EVs. Governments are delivering attractive incentives and policies to promote the sales of EVs. Some of these incentives include reduced selling prices, zero or low registration fees, and free charging infrastructure of EVs at multiple charging stations. The growing adoption of electric vehicles drives market growth. These electric vehicles depend on large battery packs, and each of these packs requires a protective housing.

The developments in battery technology are increasing the energy density and range of electric vehicles. The larger and more efficient battery packs further drive the need for specialized EV battery housing. For instance, in June 2023, Toyota announced that the company would introduce high-performance, solid-state batteries and other technologies to improve the driving range and cut costs of future Electric Vehicles (EVs). This development is estimated to drive market growth during the forecast period.


High Material Cost and Safety Regulations May Hamper Market Growth

The restraining factor in the market could be the high cost of materials. The cost of material used in Electric Vehicle battery housing directly contributes to the overall manufacturing cost of an electric vehicle. The expensive material can significantly raise the price of electric vehicles, making them less competitive with Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. The high cost of developing and manufacturing specialized battery housing may hinder demand for Electric Vehicle battery housing. Strict safety regulations govern the design and manufacturing of battery housing to prevent thermal runways and fires. This regulation can be challenging and costly for manufacturers.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery Housing Market Segmentation Analysis

By Vehicle Type Analysis

Passenger Car Segment Propels as BYD’s Strategic Move Spurs Growth

Based on vehicle type, the market is segmented into passenger car and commercial vehicle. The passenger car segment holds the highest Electric Vehicle (EV) battery housing market share globally and is expected to grow during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to rising electric passenger car production by OEMs/manufacturers. For instance, in September 2022, BYD Co. Ltd. signed an agreement with WHA Corp. (Industrial Estate developer) to build an electric vehicle production plant in Southeast Asia. This development drives segmental growth in the market. Additionally, government regulations and incentives often focus on promoting the adoption of electric passenger vehicles, driving market growth.

The commercial vehicle segment holds the second largest market share. The segment’s growth is attributed to the increasing research and development, innovation, and vehicle launches. For instance, in January 2024, VinFast Auto introduced its new electric vehicle concept - the VF Wild. The concept car was VinFast's first attempt at a pickup truck. The VF Wild concept highlights VinFast's innovative efforts to create a pickup truck with exceptional performance, with an overall length of 209 inches (5324mm) and a width of 79 inches (1997mm). VinFast and Australian design studio GoMotiv jointly developed the VF Wild concept.
